Gmax testing in Florence, Alabama to measure impact attenuation
Gmax testing in Florence, Alabama measures the impact absorption properties of synthetic turf and natural grass fields. Gmax testing is important as the harder a surface is, the greater amount of energy absorbed by the human body, therefore a hard surface increases the risk of injuries and concussion to the user.
Surface Performance use a ASTM F355 A-Missile Measurement Tester to calculate Gmax values. Inside the 20lb missile is an accelerometer, upon impact it measures the impact attenuation of the playing surface. This result, as stated in ASTM F355-A must be between 165g-200g.
Surface Performance are a FIFA accredited test laboratory offering a wide range of testing methods to measure the safety and performance of artificial and natural grass surfaces.
